What could be better than enjoying a good book and a glass of wine with friends?
Eleven eager souls met on Tuesday, October 13, to start a wine and book club at Dablon Winery. We got to know each other while sipping wine and discussing our favorite books. The kind folks at the winery provided us with a festive table of fruit, cheese, and crackers. One of our club members also brought freshly baked bread with herb butters and jam.
Our first read will be, "The Signature of All Things" by Elizabeth Gilbert. We were so excited that we planned out the books that we will be reading through May of 2016!
I'm sure we are all looking forward to our next meeting on November 10th where we will drink more wine, snack a bit, and discuss our featured book. We may even decide on a title for our club. Stay tuned!!
Date: November 10th
Time: 6:30 - 8:30

Words from our Winemakers
The 2015 grape harvest is in full swing. We started with picking the Pinot Noir on September 28 followed by the Seyval Blanc the 29 and the Chardonnay October 7. Within the last week we have picked the Merlot, Malbec, Carmenere, Syrah, Tannat, Cabernet Franc and Riesling. The harvest numbers have been excellent so far and should produce wines of equal quality to that of the 2013 vintage. We are still holding out on the Cab Sauvignon and Petit Verdot which are always the last to get picked. For those of you who love the Carmenere, fermentation is progressing well and the smell of spice and jalapenos is already present. We are also producing a Syrah for the first time. With the aromas, color and spiciness, it’s very exciting for us - and hopefully for our customers as well! Be patient and look for the 2015 red vintages in 2017!
Cheers from the winemakers.
